Dear SRLA Families,

A concerned parent sent me this earlier today.

"Today at drop-off, I noticed that some drivers continue to drive around stopped cars as children are departing the car, and I wanted to bring it to your attention. This has happened to us multiple times, with a vehicle squeezing between the side of my car and the walkway or the median while my children are getting out. It is dangerous."

As a reminder, not a single car should pass a car on the left as they are unloading children in the morning.

Please just take the extra minute to ensure that all of our children are safe and sound on school grounds.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Principal Underwood

Dear St. Rose Families,

Easter is traditionally the time in the Christian calendar that celebrates Jesus’ victory over death and is usually a time that we look to with optimism for the spring months ahead. Remain positive!

Last year at this time we could never have imagined that our new normal would include a year-long journey which included in-seat and virtual-learning for our students and distancing ourselves from friends and family. It has been an incredibly difficult school year with all of the adjustments we have had to make. We, as a school community, appreciate all that you have done to support your child whether in-seat or at home. We are here for you and we encourage everyone to support one another through these trying times.

The online store for SRLA spirt wear is now open, and with an expanded selection of St. Rose-customized gear and apparel!

Items will be available for purchase now through Sunday, April 4th. We've added some new items to the spirt wear store, including baseball caps, bucket hats, tanks, headbands, duffel bag, and umbrellas. Have fun shopping!!

Sale proceeds will benefit the school.

If you have any questions, please email Rosemary Mattson, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
